The Florida Association of College and Research Libraries (FACRL) is the Florida state chapter of the American Library Association's (ALA) division of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL).

FACRL strives to provide opportunities for professional development and networking while promoting the exchange of ideas and information.  FACRL is open to librarians from all types of academic libraries in Florida, including public and private colleges and universities, as well as specialized research libraries.

There are two ways to become a members of FACRL.  If you are a member of ALA's ACRL division, you are automatically a member of FACRL.  If you're not an ALA/ACRL member,  just click the "Join" button above and complete the application.  The only requirements for non-ALA/ACRL membership are that you are a librarian or library vendor working in Florida with some affiliation to higher education and are willing to pay a small membership fee.  FACRL does not have institutional memberships.

Dear FACRL members,

We are asking you today to make a donation to FACRL’s Hurricane Michael Disaster Relief Funds for libraries and library staff

Relief funds will be distributed among three affected academic libraries in the area: Florida State University – Panama City, Gulf Coast State College, and Chipola College.  The issue is much bigger than the library facilities – it is the people who work in those facilities. 

FACRL will match up to $1000.

Please give a donation today by completing the donation form below. 

Thank you for helping your colleagues during this difficult time.


Rebecca Donlan

President, FACRL
